CMU Stories

Pittsburgh, PA and in app (2018)

Avrey, Leon, Latasha, Tiana, and Nikola are night-shift janitors at Carnegie Mellon University. CMU Stories is a small step toward acknowledging their work, and the undervalued labor of all workers, especially janitors, at Carnegie Mellon. 

CMU Stories takes the form of a site-specific augmented reality application. It is programmed to interpret commemorative plaques and sculptures on Carnegie Mellon's campus and, in return, play a video featuring Avrey, Leon, Latasha, Tiana, or Nikola.
